Nice to see you all again!

DO NOW (15 min.)

Hours 1 and 3:

Grab a purple self-scoring sheet on your way into class. Look at your journal entries from last week and score each one from 1-4. Make sure they are all uploaded to Seesaw. Turn the purple sheet into the work basket.

Hour 2:

If you need to finish the purple sheet from Friday or upload anything to Seesaw, you may do so now.

If you finished those on Friday, then you can choose to do Keyboard practice OR do some google research on Social Issues that are interesting to you.
